I will be slowing down considerably this week and I am so happy about that too! We have 1-1/2 days of school and I work tonight at Hallmark and then I am off until after Christmas!! Whoo hoo! My only goal is to have fun with my kids!! My grocery shopping and Christmas shopping is complete. I know I will probably run to the store for last minute items, it's inevitable, but no more long drawn out shopping trips. Yay!! I have a few ornaments to complete for friends and family, but I am almost done with all of that too! I can feel the relaxation settling in!! It is heavenly!!
I only had time for one layout last week and I just love it! It is my last of the year for the So Sketchy Blog. I have totally enjoyed working with Ally's sketches. So much so, that I think I will try out for the So Sketchy Design Team once again. Check it out here! Ally's sketches are awesome and she is so easy to design for. You would love being on her team!!
Here is my final So Sketchy Design for 2008:
The goodies are from Studio Calico with the exception of the Blue Moon beads, stars, and embroidery floss. The wreath is cut out from my Cricut using the Joys of the Season Cartridge.
This picture of my sweet girl was taken in 1987 as she was participating in her first Christmas play at Church!! Isn't she a doll? One little note: gold embroidery floss is quite difficult to work with, but I do love the effect!! Thanks for another wonderful sketch Ally!!
I do hope that you are all enjoying your Holidays!!
I am looking forward to taking some extra time out and getting into The Word and remembering the Reason for the Season!!
Have a great day,
